Castles of Steel,
This review is from: Castles of Steel: Britain, Germany and the Winning of the Great War at Sea (Hardcover)
I have been a fan of Massie since reading his superb book 'Dreadnought'. I bought his latest book as soon as I saw it was available. It is very informative about sea warfare during WW1, without getting bogged down in detail. No doubt fine detail may be necessary if the subject is being studied for an exam, but not for those of us who simply wish to enjoy our historical reading.
I found it particularly interesting to discover the extent of the role of submarines during WW1.
Whilst perhaps not quite up to the superb standard set by 'Dreadnought' (hence 4* instead of 5), I am sure it will not disappoint.
